About the Event

The Breathe Life Cycle Challenge is a community cycle journey of over 1200 miles that will pass through 35 counties in the UK, from Lands End to John O Groats. Every breath we take, every mile we pedal will be to raise awareness of the rising tide of lung cancer in non smokers and to shine a spotlight on air pollution as a known but under-appreciated and growing risk factor. This is a challenge connecting the health of our environment to the health and wellbeing of our communities. As such, we want this to be a team cycle challenge involving residents of as many counties, cities, towns and villages as we can,  uniting families, friends and communities and monitoring local air quality as we go.

We are appealing to members of the Brunel and Hillingdon communities to join in for relay sections of this ride. Whether you are a student or a member of staff or a resident of the Hillingdon Community come and join us for a leisurely pedal into the royal counties of Buckinghamshire and Berkshire or for the full 66 mile trip to Oxford, testing your fitness and endurance. 

There will be water stops/support vehicles at approximately 20 miles and 40 miles. This event is FREE to join. T-shirts and cycle jerseys are optional  £25 (includes t-shirt) or £50 (includes cycle jersey). We have vehicle support (including transport for luggage if you are staying over in Oxford) and route information.

So if you want an opportunity to move for something that matters –whether that’s for the environment, health, your children's future or in memory or support of a loved one then don't delay, sign up today and we will add you to the team. The more communities we reach , the more awareness and funds we raise.

If you cant ride, you can still help by volunteering or by simply donating to our page:

Together we will breathe life into charities supporting research and action , The Ruth Strauss Foundation, Alk+ UK and the friends of the earth campaign for Clean Air. 

You can also support us by encouraging others to get involved. Please email the link to our website to your friends and family, or share it on social media. Thank you for your generosity and support.
